My EE's and the AM's have been on strike apparently due to : not liking the house. The reason I say that is cause I moved them to new diggs and we didn't have a real coop for them yet so they were put into one of my breeding houses. Well my eggs just STOPPED! Didn't slow down, it stopped. Well it took us awhile to get the new house built but we got it done Sunday and moved the girls right in. Last night I went to check if I had any eggs not expecting a one.... and I have 3 greens and 2 blues!!!!!!! All at once. I was excited!!!! bet ya couldn't tell......
now just waiting on the pullet and all will be laying. All but Ol'girl but she is 3 so ya know. She isn't a EE or an AM anyway but she don't get picked on with them like she did with the others so she has a new family, and she has been happy ever since I let her stay with them.
Now need some ideals... I have a 1 yr old that I got the beginning of the year, ( EE ) and I have been trying to put her in the EE pen of course ever since she came out of ISO. ( 8 mths ago ) and she just isn't being accepted by anyone, she sleeps by herself and that just aint going to work for winter. Anyone have anyway special to get her accepted, I have even tried putting just 1 other hen with her and only them 2 trying to get them to buddy up but it never works. The roo's all love her, the hens hate her. I don't want to rehome her she is people friendly and sings to me all the time. And she gives me an egg EVERY day since she started laying. Even through her molt a few weeks ago she still gave me an egg a day.
Any ideals would be great.
Thanks in advance.
